Official Antifa expresses discontent with an upcoming UC Berkeley on-campus event:
It matters not that Dave Rubin holds a better than average hand in privilege poker – he’s Jewish and married to a man – he’s a free speech advocate, which renders him guilty of affiliation with the alt-right, or even worse, support for Nazis.
Rubin, formerly on-staff at lunatic-lefty website The Young Turks, struck out on his own after realising that the last thing the left wants is a free exchange of ideas.
The Official Antifa website seems to indicate that the anti-Rubin campaign is a huge hoax:
The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is a political movement dedicated to freeing people from bondage and building resistance in the United States. We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in the tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian. The Rojava Revolution, in northern Syria, provides us with a model for revolution today with its foundation in communal and council based political organization and militant defense.
Kudos to those who devoted the time and effort to so effectively lampooning leftist thugs.
